Another Juninho Edition of the Daily Merengue

The Daily Merengue is a place where you can feel free to discuss all things football. Do not be alarmed by the overt RMCF bias. It’s in the name!

Shoutout to the mods who do a fantastic job, Valyrian Steel, KungFuZizou, NeRObutBlanco, Felipejack, and Long Live Juninho!


Another Three Points

Per usual, Real Madrid suffered until they didn’t. A tepid first half suddenly became frantic in the second half as Asensio scored a classic golazo, Vini changed his boots, Paulista lost his mind, and Ceballos dominated the midfield.

But At What Cost?

The injury trend sadly continued. Militao, Benzema, and Kroos were subbed with potential knocks. It appears that the Benzema and Kroos subs were precautionary, but Militao’s is something of concern that we will need to continue monitoring throughout the weekend.

A Bit of Good News Though!
